In March of 2010, POSAM (Preserving Our Southern Appalachian Music) initiated its performing band, Sweet Potato Pie Kids, which is made up of top students in the YAM program. These students must be recommended by their instructors and are then scheduled for audition. The current band is made up of nine students. The purpose of the band is to promote POSAM and the YAM program while raising funds for the entire nonprofit organization. The group has become a popular attraction in Pickens County. Several of the original members have won awards and are now performing on their own around the area.

Andrew Dennis – guitar/banjo
Ella Hennessee – guitar
Lilly Holder – fiddle
Brooke Smith – fiddle
Noah Trimnal – guitar
Gracie York – mandolin
